CRX 210E1 IDE CD-R/RW
- Page 4
We used CloneCD and 4 original CDs - Serious Sam 2 (SafeDisc 2), Desperados
(LaserLock 2), V-Rally 2 Expert (SecuROM 2) and NBA Jam Extreme (PSX) - in order
to test the reading times of the drive. We also tested the reading performance
with backups of the original CDs, since the reading speed varies between original
and backup media. The following picture show the drive reading/writing features
as CloneCD reports:
- PSX Pressed Media
For this test we used the PSX game 'NBA Jam Extreme' and we ripped the image
to the HD with CloneCD. The Sony drive is faster than Cyberdrive CW088D but
finished the task in the double time the Plextor drive did.
- SafeDisc v.2 Results
Sony CRX-210E1 finished the task in 11:25 minutes, but the Plextor drive
is faster ripped the image at 1172.77 sectors/sec with the pressed disc and
slightly slower with the copied one. Cyberdrive CW088D is also faster than the
Sony drive in the original CD test.
- LaserLock v.2 Results
This time Sony CRX-210E1 gets the first place in the original
CD test. The duration of the process was 20 minutes. In the backup test, the
drive was also fast but the Plextor and Cyberdrive drives were faster.
- SecuROM v.2 Results
All drives can read SubChannel data from Data/Audio tracks. The Sony drive
finished the task in 2:40 minutes. In the same test, Cyberdrive is faster and
leads the race.
